Synaptic Gap

Is it my time to die?

Synaptic Gap

My conduit is empty

Devoid of synaptic transmission

Inerted with asphyxiant

Cells of thought

left high and dry

Is it my time to die


Help me find the spigot

Help me turn on the water

The living water of life

with which helps each of us grow

Mind the gap and love will flow

I do not want to die

As I’ve traveled many mindful miles

on journeys of occupation

creating design information

while sharing plans with tradesmen

All this mental mind mapping

gets one lost in their mind

The ideas of empathetic feeling

can become so hard to find

Thus as an engineer ages

the greatest gift might be…

Asking Gods gift of gravity

to transition my intellectuality

from the mind to the heart


As I find both poetry and prayer

faltering when the mind is leading

Oh help me Lord, please guide my heart

Mind the gap and love will flow

I do not want to die.
